I thought to start with Cialis 5 mg at first and then after the effect increase the dose or stop. The effect was just stunning, except that there was a little reddening on my face in the first few minutes after taking the pill. Excellent drug.

A young artist whose work was part of a world-first conference dedicated to the life of late pop great Prince is creating a painting for a Wrexham finance’s firm new headquarters.

Alice Tulane, 25, from Connah’s Quay, is producing an abstract piece to adorn the walls of Hadlow Edwards Wealth Management’s new offices inside the town’s Grade II listed former Wrexham Lager brewery building.

The fast expanding company, which was established in 2000 by founding partners Warren Hadlow and Medwyn Edwards, is also offering other local artists the chance to showcase their work on the walls at the state of the art base they have created in the historical building on the edge of Central Retail Park.

Former Connah’s Quay High School and Deeside College student Alice has previously had photography art work on display at the three-day ‘Purple Reign’ conference hosted by Salford University, which paid homage to the life and legacy of the late musician Prince.

But this is the first time she has had a painting commissioned and she has thanked Hadlow Edwards Wealth Management for the exposure they are providing.

Front man of legendary Welsh band Super Furry Animals and Mercury Nominated outfit Neon Neon, Gruff Rhys will play a special full band show at The Live Rooms, Wrexham on Friday 7th December. 

The show follows the release of Babelsberg earlier this year – Gruff’s fifth solo album, and his first record release on Rough Trade Records since 2007’s classicCandylion. 

The album’s ten tracks were initially recorded in early 2016 in a whirlwind three day session. The band he gathered for the record were his regular drummer Kliph Scurlock (ex-Flaming Lips) and multi-instrumentalists Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo) and Osian Gwynedd. 

Over  the  course  of  Babelsberg’s  forty  something  minutes,  Gruff  manages  to  perfectly  document  our  troubled  and  troubling  times  with  humour,  grace  and  always  addictive  melody.  In  a  career  that’s  spanned  three  decades,  two  languages,  multiple  bands,  offshoots,  collaborations  and  one  boundless  imagination,  Babelsberg  is  arguably  Gruff’s  finest  set  of  songs  to  date.

As if releasing a new album isn’t enough, Gruff Rhys recently made his debut at Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a run of eight sold out shows, and will be extensively touring the US, Europe, and the UK, before appearing in Wrexham with his full band on Friday 7th December.

Tickets are on sale tomorrow, Thursday 20th September at 9am via focuswales.com/tickets
